Farmers must secure property against rain

Monday, February 05, 2018

Update: 11:57AM FARMERS must secure their property and livestock to ensure their farms are protected from loss during the current heavy rain pelting the country.

The Ministry of Agriculture issued the warning this morning in light of heavy rain warning in force for Vanua Levu, Yasawa, Mamanuca, Lau and Lomaiviti groups, and northern, eastern and western Viti Levu.

A statement from the ministry advises farmers to take necessary precautions to reduce risk to life and their property.

"The weather forecast by the Fiji Meteorological Services reveal that localised heavy rain can cause flash flooding in low lying areas," the statement said.

"Farmers are advised to begin securing their property, stock, and life. It is recommended that farmers keep their animals, machinery and farm implements away from flood-prone areas and secure the livestock sheds."
